The fifth commandment

The fifth commandment trailer

So how come Sony can offer a 4 lb, 1 inch thick, vaio Z with Blu-ray drive for less money and better specs than the current MBPs and MBA? I guess they didnt get the memo that it was too expensive or too big. Besides, how do we know what dimensions or what type of drive Apple will use in the new models. Maybe Apple will move away from slot loading drives. There was some speculation that they might use a new design bottom loading drive. So how come Sony can offer a 4 lb, 1 inch thick, vaio Z with Blu-ray drive for less money and better specs than the current MBPs and MBA? I guess they didnt get the memo that it was too expensive or too big. 1 Sony is behind Blu-ray and is desperately pushing the format before digital downloads get good enough for most people to jump from DVD to digital so they can sell these drives for little profit like they the fifth commandment trailer with their PCs or even at a loss like with the PS3 in the short term to push the format forward. 2 If you have proof of a slot-loading BRD that is at a reasonable price-point then point it out to us. If you have proof of a 5mm slot-loading BRD even exists then point it out to us. 3 You dont have a clue what you are talking about. The Z-series start at 1800 without a BRD. You have to pay 20 99 for a 13 notebook before you even have and option for the BRD, which will cost you an additional 5 4 The Z-series thickness is 0 at the front to That is 33% thicker than a MBP and considerably more volume over a MBs current case. Again, exactly where would this fit in a MB or MBP that currently takes a 5mm drive? Do you think Apple is going to thicken its cases and move to a tray-loading drive just to accommodate a few foolish people? 5 Its been stated several times now, the Z-series does not use a slot loading drive, yet it still costs 500 and is twice the thickness of the MBs optical drive. Are the words slot and tray really that difficult to comprehend? PS: This is usually where someone responds with a lame comment that puts Apple on a pedestal and claims that Apple can have these non-existent 3rd-party drives and a much lower pricepoint than larger, cheaper drives simply because they are Apple. 2 If you have proof of a slot-loading BRD that is at a reasonable price-point then point it out to us. 4 The Z-series thickness is 0 at the front to That is 33% thicker than a MBP and considerably more volume over a MBs current just to accommodate a few foolish people? 1 Its not the quality of the downloads that is the problem for most people, its the connection speed or the fifth commandment trailer the lack thereof and downloads caps. 2 Maybe theyll get cheaper soon? Like CD and DVD drives did. 4 Maybe theyll get thinner soon? Like CD and DVD drives did. 2 If you have proof of a slot-loading BRD that is at a reasonable price-point then point it out to us.

Are the words slot and tray really that difficult to comprehend? So whats your point? I never said any thing about a slot loading drive. I just said that Sony is able to fit a blu-ray drive in a slim light weight laptop at a price point that is similar to the current MBPs and MBA. If you havent noticed everyone is talking re-design this time around for the MBP. How do you know that Apple wont taper the laptop similar to Vaio Z or the MBA and move away from slot-loading drives. Slot loading drives are a pain in the a% anyway. 1 Its not the quality of the downloads that is the problem for most people, its the connection speed or rather the lack thereof and downloads caps. I know this is an issue in countries like Australia, but in the US its just starting become an issue. Still Comcast has put the current cap at 250GB. Currently, a 2 hour HD movie from iTS is about 5GB. Note: Apple not including an internal BRD doesnt mean they cant include the ability to play BR media through an external drive either offered through them or a 3rd-party. 2 Maybe theyll get cheaper soon? Like CD and DVD drives did. They will, but will it be cheap enough to be viable. As Ive noted several times, a slot-loading BRD is cost and physically prohibitive according to all available sources i can find. 4 Maybe theyll get thinner soon? Like CD and DVD drives did.
